Dr Georgina Jones
Lecturer in Social Science, University of Sheffield
Georgina Jones has worked as a lecturer in social science at the University of Sheffield since September 2001. Previously she worked for 3 years as a postgraduate research assistant in the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and the Health Services Research Unit at the University of Oxford. Here she undertook a D.Phil in the measurement of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in women with endometriosis and developed a new psychometric tool to measure the impact this condition has upon the well-being of women with the condition. Since then her research interests have extended to include quality of life measurement and instrument development and validation for women with other benign (in particular, polycystic ovary syndrome and pelvic floor disorders) and malignant gynaecological conditions. Her undergraduate teaching responsibilities include the MBChB. She is currently Course Director for the MSc in Health and Social Care Research by Distance Learning.
